    I'm looking for healthy snack ideas. I'm getting tired of baby carrots, apples and hard boiled eggs. They need to be quick and easy. Any ideas?

    Cottage cheese with one of the following:

    Multigrain crackers (use Cottage cheese as a dip)

    Sunchips (again, dip)

    On toast with jam (tastes like cheesecake)

    with tomato, salt, pepper, and basil (tastes like a caprese salad)

    With cinnamon, nutmeg, and honey (tastes like blintze filling)

    With ground flax seeds on top

    with granola

    with chopped up fresh fruit

    By itself.


    The possibilities are endless...

    Hummus is also very versatile

    Almonds, walnuts, or other kinds of nuts if you are not allergic to them.

    Also wasa crackers .. they come in a variety of flavors but are usually some sort of whole grain and they are lean/baked or something .. you can top them with all kinds of stuff.

    I am addicted to them.

    Here are some snack recipes:

    I'm definately down with cottage, wasa, and greek yogurt. Also, take some time and make some vegetarian chili with a lot of different kinds of beans. Great snack if you have a small portion and the protein and fiber fill you up.

    Reduced Fat Triscuts...with just about anything. Also, the flavored ones are damn good to eat by themselves!

    Cold sage-rubbed pork tenderloin slices on a cracker. You can cook a pork tenderloin in 20 minutes for a meal and then you've got extra for snacking. Please forgive my suggestion if you don't eat pork!

    Ugh yeah dude I'd have to agree with everyone else. Judging by your appearance, you've got the eating healthy part down pat ;) But there are a couple things I've taking into consideration snack wise. Maybe you can try them out. After all, it did help me shed 101lbs (eating healthy and working out).

    1) hummus with crackers (whole wheat or multi-grain), pretzels, or pita bread
    2) low fat cheese sticks
    3) nutritious bowl of cereal with soy or skim milk
    4) corn chips with fresh salsas or avocado
    5) a mixture of freshly cut fruit, light yogurt, and granola on top (mmm this one's my favorite).
    6) spring mix salad, feta cheese, dried cranberries, fat free raspberry vin dressing, and some honey roasted almonds on top. maybe add some chicken if your not veg like myself.
    7) toasted whole wheat bread with nutella on top or PB

    Typically have a clif mojo bar, or kashi peanut butter granola bars on hand. They're not as high in sugar as some of the other snack bars out there, and they're a good combo of carbs and protein. That or I'll have single serving packs of nuts and or trail mix.

    Love the yogurt ideas above..delicious stuff!

    Also get into some ice cream or frozen yogurt.
    At work I generally have an apple, orange or grapes in the fridge.
    Otherwise jello and powerade have been tired and true methods of snackage.
